Bowman hits the front of Sydney premiership
12 Jul 2017 | ThoroughbredNEWS News Desk 

Hugh Bowman started the Australian Turf Club's meeting at Canterbury on Wednesday in second place on the Sydney metropolitan jockey premiership, one and a half wins behind the suspended Brenton Avdulla, and he ended the day the new leader.

First up he rode the Chris Waller trained Rip Van Winkle filly Awoke (NZ) to win the Bm 67 Handicap (1250m) for three-year-old's. The margin was only a short half-head over The Pharoah and Josh Parr but it was sufficient to close on Avdulla.

Second up Bowman had to wait until the last race, the Schweppes Bm 67 Handicap (1250m), to bring home the Luke Pepper trained Viceroy for a 1/2L win and he was in the premiership lead.

"Yes, I have hit the front. I had nice rides, they all had their chances. Six rides for five placings and a fourth. It is not a bad effort," Bowman said.

Bowman has a full book of rides at Rosehill on Saturday including on the Snowden trained last start winner Gold Symphony on the feature $150,000, listed ATC Winter Stakes (1400m).
